The effects of tea drinking on the tobacco-specific nitrosamine 4-(methylnitrosamine)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK)-induced mouse lung oncogene expression and the effect of topical application of the tea polyphenol component (-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) on 12-O-tedradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA)-induced mouse skin oncogene expression were investigated.
